Phases of the Moon

CheezWaster’s Pre-K class has been talking about the moon.  Each day they talk about what the moon will look like that night.  I think it is in an interesting subject for a bunch of 4 year olds.  More interesting is how much they have taken to it.  My son is like a little Albert Einstein talking about waxing and waning.  He sounds so intellectual.  I’m so impressed.  Even the Destroyer is picking up on it now.  Some days I have this mental image in my head of the bobble heads from A Night At the Museum - just because of their stature.  I just have to chuckle to myself.

 CheezWaster’s teacher sent home a web resource so that the class parents could keep updated on the phases of the moon with their children.  The Moon Phases Calendar is a tool or moon schedule that lets you find out the lunar phase for any given month.  The internal phase calculator is very accurate, but the images are approximations. The moon calculations are based on your time zone as specified by your computer.  We enjoy checking the calendar and comparing what we see outside at night.  We also have begun talking about stars and planets.  I know there are times when the kids just want to sit and veg out and watch Pokemon, but I just love hearing my future astronaut? little smarty pants tell me what phase of the moon it is!
